About Us

Patrons: High Sheriffs of East and West Sussex

Neighbourhood Watch began life in the UK over 40 years ago in response to rising crime, but today, as times change, it covers all aspects of keeping safe.

Our main aims are to prevent crime, reduce the fear of crime, and improve safety. That means that whilst combating crime remains our core aim, we also help out in other important ways that help protect our communities, such as during and after emergencies.

We are supported by the Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner and Sussex Police.


Are you a coordinator for a scheme or are you interested in setting up your own scheme? If so, simply enter your postcode in to the postcode search box above to find schemes around you.

By entering your postcode you have the option to apply to join a scheme or send the local contact a message. You can also see scheme information, police details, policing priorities, crimes and outcomes for your area.
